An Oscar Nominee Hit Nia Long's Car... & Now They're Friends!

Nia Long‘s car was sitting in the parking lot at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills when someone drove past and sideswiped the vehicle. The driver of the other car just so happened to be songwriter Diane Warren!

Diane says she was trying to find a place to leave her car for the valet when she accidentally clipped the side of Nia‘s Porsche.

“I hit a car,” she told THR. “I gave my info to the attendants with my insurance, drivers license and the phone number for a friend.”

Diane later received a call that the other car belonged to Nia.

“We hit it off and now we’re talking about having dinner. She wasn’t upset at all. What are the chances?” Diane said. They even ran into each other the next day at a coffee shop. “This time we ran into each other… I love smashes — just not car smashes.”

Diane is a Grammy winner with 15 nominations to her name and she also has 11 Oscar nominations for Best Original Song, including one this year for “I’m Standing With You” from Breakthrough.
